14 Strappy Workout Tanks That Show Off Your Back

Business in the front, party in the back—and no, we’re not talking about a long-dead hairstyle. It’s actually the latest trend in workout tops, which are all about showing off your sexy back and shoulders with criss-cross straps and big cutouts. But, the best part? They look incredible while you work out, and transition seamlessly from sweat to street. Pair them with your favorite mesh leggings for a super on-trend look.

Here’s a bunch of our favorites:
